1812 Myers Modern Geography New Holland United States USA 17 Antique Folding Map
A Compendious System of Modern Geography, Historical, Physical, Political, and Descriptive: Accompanied with many Interesting Notes; and A Series of Correct Maps: being adapted to the use of the higher classes of pupils under both public and private tuition. Of the Royal Military Academy, Woolwich. A superbly comprehensive description of the World as it was in 1812, complete with 17 fold-out maps, including one of the World in two hemispheres.

Europe; England & Wales; Scotland; Ireland; N. Europe; France; Spain & Portugal; Asia; India; United States of America; Africa; N. America; West Indies; Australasia & Polynesia.

Written at a time when regions of the world were still unexplored. The map of Australia (New Holland) is not yet precise (I believe the southern coast had yet to be fully surveyed), and of course the Poles were unknown territory. So too was much of the west of N. America, as is clear from the map. The text describes each region in some detail, and the maps are all in a very good condition.

A fine example of this important work. Size: the covers measure approx. 520 pages, including the Appendix. Condition: The book has been very neatly rebound with a new leather spine and label, and blind tooling. Original marbled boards retained (slightly scuffed).

Complete with 17 maps, including the world map frontispiece. A fine example of this work now that it has been rebound.

I have other antique maps, books, prints etc. This item is in the category "Antiques\Maps, Atlases & Globes\World Maps". The seller is "mitchmap50" and is located in this country: GB. This item can be shipped to all countries in Europe, all countries in continental Asia, United States, Canada, Australia.
